They hit really hardblink.gif

 

edit: though I have to agree on the very high suggested price. Glad I got mine almost half the price.

Even if i don't have T1 anymore , they seam a bit rude with it , you can prefer many cans to T1 , but they are great  and deserv their flagship status same league as HE-6 / HD800 IMO etc .

Who's got the canisters, preproman is bringing the gas I see. :)

 

It's been a while since I've sold my T1s, but on a positive note I did have some good moments with them.

They are talking about how different T1s can sound very different. This issue seems to pop up every now and then, apparently even in the HD800 thread! wink.gif Shouldn't it be possible to find a way to confirm or refute this? Measurements would be great, or some obvious physical difference, but maybe there are other ways. For instance, have people listened to different T1s with the same source and amp and found  differences? Or have people sent in their T1s for repair and found them better sounding  when they returned? 

 

I think the T1s are great and can't think of any other pair of headphones that could work in a single-headphone setup for all genres and be comfortable for hours at a time.

The HD800 and HE-6 may well be better than the T1 as an all-round headphone, but they also cost upwards of a few hundred more than the T1 and have a harder time being amped properly.   For me at the price I paid, I've listened to quite a few headphones costing nearly as much, and the T1s smash everything.   Not even close to me.  I don't find them sibilant, but I figure I tend to prefer slightly bright sounding gear.  (I need me some decent sparkle in the top end to appreciate them... also enjoyed things like the RS1).

 

 

EDIT: Seriously... what is with people posting things like how the T1  is completely "unlistenable".  People make objective claims about other flagships being bad get torn apart for listening to them with the wrong source or something, or even just listening wrong.

HE is the biggest cost. Adequate speaker amps can be had for a few hundred dollars if you don't already have one.

That said, the T-1 certainly are in the same league with both the 6 & 800 and not as hard to amp as the others.

Hi All,

 

Beyerdynamic T1 sn 10728 reporting in!  Very Excited!  Got 15hrs in 2 days.  Currently I am driving it with a Creative Sound Blaster ZX sound card...but something is missing.  It's great out of the box.  Definitely a lot better than my previous Bose (as you can see that I am new to audiophile).  But I was expecting better from all the good things I've read about it.  I don't know what it is, could be the break-in...or the amp.  But I wish its both cuz I already have my eyes on WA7, and I can probably do 200 hrs easily. 

 

Btw, Sorry to hear that we are getting slammed by HD800...

post #4059 of 7273

check out the WA3/WA2 for the T1.

post #4060 of 7273

Thanks for the suggestion!

 

I actually read a lot of good things about WA2.  That's why I am considering it too.  But the simplicity of the all-in-1 WA7 catches me.  My budget is from $1000 - $1500.  If the WA2 is significantly better, I will definitely get it.  The problem is that nobody seems to have heard T1 from both WA2 and WA7.  Therefore, I have no reference to refer to.

post #4061 of 7273

yeah the WA7 is a fairly new amp. so there isn't much on it (if anyone wants to lend me a WA7 though, i'd be glad to compare it! tongue_smile.gif

 

the WA7 seems to pair better with LCD-2, seems like a very popular amp for them now, but it does well with HD 800 as well.

 

the WA7 is an all-in-one, but the WA2 would pair better with T1.  for 1500$, i would go with WA2 ($1190), a Schiit Modi or ODac (entry level, but should be decent enough 100-150$), and Tung Sol 5998 power tubes ($200, but highly recommended)

Damn right !

 

For me , T1 is as comfortable as HD650 which is pretty good, can have them on my head whole day without single issue.

 

Also can listen to absolutely everything and it all sounds phenomenal.

 

I think some ppl hate them because without proper amp they can be ear-piercing in treble area when listening on higher volumes.

 

The longer I do have T1's the more I love them.

I  fully agree on the part about comfort and listening all day.

 

The part about amping is not exactly right.

 

I have had a Burson HA-160D, WA2 and Meier Classic and they all sounded good. Maybe different, but never ear-piercing or anywhere near that.

Well lot of ppl is complaining about treble on T1 that's why I mentioned it. From my experience with wrong tubes in Lyr ... treble is quite extreme, but with right ones ... I just love these headphones, guess it's my end game for now.

I agree that the T1, with the wrong tubes, could be overly bright, but with the right ones, sound just transparently fantastic.  Hope you guys don't view this as a betrayal, but I just ordered the HD-800 refurb from Crutchfield.  Should be here Wednesday.  So I'll be doing my own shoot-off !!
